DOORWAY TO ECSTASY: A DANCER’S INITIATION
A Fascinating Spiritual Adventure and Detailed Teaching Manual of
Egyptian Temple Dance: The Ancient Origin of Bellydance.
Undergoing a crisis of the heart and spirit, artist Sherry Brier meets a mysterious teacher of mystical movement who initiates her into Egyptian Temple Dance. As the enigmatic Prema Devi prepares Sherry for her Return to the Source, she introduces her to other masters of wisdom. From California to the sacred sites of Egypt, Sherry’s spiritual journey interweaves her present life with her far distant past, revealing the blueprint of her destiny. Follow her on her liberating path of transformation from self to Soul.
“Now you must leave your work behind and take a leap of faith. Go unburdened into the moment. Use the dance as a springboard…jump into eternity…unite with the Spirit. Have faith that everything that is necessary, and more, will be provided and will flow right through you into the arms of the audience. You and your performance become the doorway to ecstasy. Let others enter through you…from DOORWAY TO ECSTASY
Although based on a true story, I call DOORWAY TO ECSTASY a metaphysical memoir, as some of the events transcend ordinary concepts of time and space. The character I call Prema is a composite of all the teachers I’ve been blessed with along my path. The words she says have come from the mouths of many. The teaching is my synthesis of all I have learned in my many years as both student and teacher.
DOORWAY TO ECSTASY is also a detailed teaching manual of transformational movement and performance. When a new student walks in the door, I immediately see the dancer she can become. I hold that vision in my mind until one day she is inside that image looking out at me. In between, there is much commitment, energy, and hard work for both of us as we follow the paths of initiation outlined in this book. The dancer I’m hoping to reveal is a unique expression of the Spirit. She is an artist who inspires, uplifts, and transports others into the healing world of Beauty.
